This is what I’ve learned from my last visit in General Santos City. A simple way of grilling Tuna Belly.
Fishing Tuna is one of the major business of General Santos City and of course grilling tuna is also one of their forte when it comes to dish.
But of course before leaving for home from General Santos City, I passed by the Tuna store (Pacific Seas seafood Market) to buy some tuna belly, to try their style of grilling tuna when I get home.
It’s so simple, I never thought grilling tuna is that simple to do. It’s as simple of defrosting, marinade and grill!
All you need are the following:
For marination you’ll be needing:
And for grilling all you need is a one fourth (1/4) cup of butter or margarine the marinade and a pastry brush.
Just combine all ingredients for marination and marinade the tuna belly and refrigerate. The longer marination time, the better flavor, but not too long – overnight is best.
Preheat the grill. If you are using a grill plate, heat it to low fire and melt the half of the 1/4 cup of butter or margarine into it.
Now here’s a tip in grilling the tuna: In grilling the tuna, you should flip baste it with the marinade and brush it with melted butter it once in a while.
Note: Do not over cook to retain its tenderness.
Here they are!
